Floridan Palace Reviews From Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:

“We knew we needed space (due to our guest list), and we both wanted a formal setting. We also wanted a venue that was unique and special. Our venue, The Floridan Palace, is a classic historical gem in Tampa! It’s like a taking a step back in time from the moment you walk in. Terry and I went to the Sapphire Lounge (the bar located downstairs in the venue) on our first date. He decided to take me back there for our second date the following week. The hotel itself holds sentimental value to us. We are still receiving compliments on the food and service. Our wedding day was magical from start to finish!” -Samantha and Terry | Classic Gold and Ivory Downtown Tampa Wedding

“The Floridan is a family-owned and run hotel, and the personnel in charge of the wedding event sought nothing but perfection and was very detailed in their work. They helped tremendously with coordinating and suggesting ideas to make the wedding the best it could be. What really surprised us and set The Floridan apart from other venues was the gorgeous ballroom and the food was absolutely amazing!” -Caren and George | Vintage Glam Floridan Palace Ballroom Wedding

“As soon as we walked into the Floridan Palace, we knew that it was the perfect place. It is overwhelmingly stunning and very much fit both of our personalities. The attention to detail in the remodel of the building was perfect. The wedding day service was great. The food was excellent, and the portion sizes were almost too big, but no one’s complaining about too much steak and lobster! They handed out shots for toasts, and there was never a wait.” -Christiana and Charley | Old Tampa Inspired Floridan Palace Wedding

“The Floridan has the most beautiful and elegant grand ballroom that has touches of ivory, gold and my favorite color, dusty sea mist. It is such a magical room, and it just felt right to us. Toula and Katrina were wonderful to work with. I felt that they supported me as a bride, and they were very patient as we worked out logistics for a very large wedding.” -Katie and Andy | Gold and Ivory Traditional Floridan Palace Wedding

“My wedding at the Floridan made me feel like royalty! All the details were absolutely perfect. The ballroom was stunning, and it was exactly how I had pictured my wedding day. The other parts of the hotel: the guest rooms, the Sapphire Lounge and the restaurant gave my guests a weekend getaway in the heart of Downtown Tampa at a historical landmark that is unlike anything else in Florida.” -Laura and Jon | Ivory, Gold and Blush Floridan Palace Wedding
